Introduction of Loopers:
If you’ve been to a live event, you know that everyone is offered the mic to introduce themselves. For this session, we’ll break the attendee roster into groups of about 20. Each group will include Gold Loopers, Loopers in Progress, and Planners. There will be a host for each group who will moderate as each Looper wanting to introduce themselves tells who they are and another small tidbit, such as their favorite part of the Loop, when they plan to Loop, or what interests them most about the Loop. Introductions will be given on Tuesday, January 26th at 8:15pm eastern. Open to Gold Loopers, Route Briefing and Looper Lifestyle registrants.
As part of our effort to keep it about the people, we’re including some discussions where you can connect with a smaller segment of attendees and dive deeper into topics of interest. In these small group sessions, we’ll connect you with five other couples or solo Loopers with whom you have something in common. We can’t give specifics until we know who has registered and more about them, but groupings may be based on geography, type of boat, when you plan to do the Loop, who you’re Looping with (such as families or solo Loopers) or some other parameters that provide commonality. Each group will be facilitated by Gold Loopers who can share their stories and advice. You’ll leave these sessions with a group of new Looper friends with whom you can keep in contact as you continue your Great Loop plans. You'll have opportunity to connect with your small group two different times during Looper-palooza Small group sessions are scheduled for Thursday, January 28th at 8:15pm eastern and again on Tuesday, February 9th at 8:00pm eastern. Open to Gold Loopers, Route Briefing and Looper Lifestyle registrants.
Virtual tables, each assigned a different Loop-related topic, will be available for attendees to ask questions and share knowledge on the topic at hand. Attendees can move from table to table at their own pace. These roundtables will take place on Thursday, February 4th beginning at 6:30pm eastern. Open to Gold Loopers, Route Briefing and Looper Lifestyle registrants.
Open Q & A:
In addition to the live Q & A after each route session, there will be a separate Q & A session to wrap up Looper-palooza. Attendees can ask follow-up questions on what they've learned during the event or ask any type of question related to Looping to a panel of Gold Loopers. It's
sure to be chock-full of wisdom and information. This Q & A session will be held on Thursday, February 11th at 8:00pm eastern. Open to Gold Loopers, Route Briefing and Looper Lifestyle registrants.
Attendees can test their Great Loop knowledge by participating in the Great Loop Trivia Contest. The trivia contest will be held on Tuesday, February 2nd at 8:15pm eastern. Open to Gold Loopers, Route Briefing and Looper Lifestyle registrants.
These social sessions will not be recorded and will not be available for on-demand viewing.
